How to set up Color Families Print

Modified on: Fri, Jan 31, 2020 at 4:31 PM

Color Families is the Searchanise feature allowing you to combine colors with complex names (e.g. light black, dark grey) into a standard color palette and display this palette in the filter or in the option swatches

Note: In case complex colors are not assigned to the Color Family, a dropdown with colors will be displayed instead of the color palettes in the option swatches. 

There are two ways of adjusting your Color Families

1. Adding new colors to Color Families

To add or edit an existing Color Family, please go to the Filters > Color Families tab.

Note: Clear and Multicolor families can’t be deleted or edited. 

After the Edit families button is clicked, you are able to edit:

- Family name
- Family code 
- Colors included in the family 

Note: colors in the Colors included in the family input field should be separated by commas.

To delete Color Families check the tick box right next to the Colors included in the family input field and click the Delete selected button.

Clicking the + button will create a new empty Color Family.

2. Assigning Color Family to the existing color

For this variant, please go to the Filters section and click the Manage filter or Manage custom filter link right next to the Color filter. Make sure that Color is selected in the Appearance dropdown in the Settings tab.

After the changes are applied, please return to the General tab and click the Edit values button, assign a Color Family in the Color Family dropdown to each color, and save the changes.
